Here's a look at how well The X Factor 2016 contestants are doing on the charts this week.

This year the performances from the live shows haven't been released to iTunes but rather are available to stream online via Spotify.

And here's just how well the latest live performances from last Saturday night have been doing over the past week.

Matt Terry - who is the favourite to win the series - tops the ranks in terms of number of streams for the second time.

Emily Middlemas is up one spot from Week 1 with her latest song, while Honey G slips down to 4th in the Week 2 rankings.

Freddy Parker may have been given the boot on Sunday but his performance is in fact the third most streamed this week. It's more proof that, bizarrely, viewers apparently don't actually vote for the acts they want to listen to.

Samantha Lavery, 5 After Midnight and Gifty Louise are in the middle of the pack, followed by Ryan Lawrie who was in the bottom three on Sunday.

Relley C and Saara Aaalto - who was in the sing off again - are towards the bottom end of this week's streaming chart but its 4 of Diamonds who are right at the tail end.

The girl group were brought back on Saturday night to replace axed Brooks Way and closed the live show with a cover of You Keep Me Hanging On.

While it was enough to keep them out of the bottom three, it seems that not many have been particularly interested in actually listening to the performance.

The X Factor 2016 continues live this Saturday and Sunday night at 8PM on ITV with Divas week.

* Streams correct as of October 20, 7PM.
